Nick Foles | QB | Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has completed 25.6 percent of his throws over 20 yards this season. He is on pace to make 156 attempts of 20 or more yards. He had 55 attempts and completed 45 percent of them last season.
Huddle Up: At least some of Foles' struggles with the deep ball can be traced back to the offensive line, which has been ravaged by injury and suspension thus far this year. Foles' deep-ball issues are just one of the issues Philly's offense is facing, but Foles' numbers were successfully hiding the problem until the loss to San Francisco last week.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed 19 of 29 passes for 179 yards with one touchdown and one interception during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21. He led the offense to three scoring drives in the first half.
Huddle Up: Foles currently owns the sixth-highest ADP (59) among QBs, and is firmly in charge of an innovative Philly offense that should again prove to be one of the league's best this season.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed six of his nine pass attempts for 44 yards in the preseason opener against the Chicago Bears Friday, Aug. 8, but he was also picked off twice.
Huddle Up: It wasn't a great night for Foles but he was without starting WR Riley Cooper. Foles and the Eagles' offense is still projected to be among the best in the NFL, so there's no need to panic over one preseason game. Foles is currently being selected in the early portion of Round 7 on average in fantasy drafts.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has impressed new quarterbacks coach Bill Musgrave with his ability to process everything that is happening on the field quickly. 'We know he's a gifted athlete. He can throw the ball exactly where he wants to. He can add air, add touch. He can add velocity and really drive it when it's needed. But to see the way that he can visualize formations, coverages, and process what he sees has been impressive,' Musgrave said. Musgrave thinks Foles can work on getting rid of the ball faster, taking fewer hits and moving the ball forward with his legs when needed.
Huddle Up: Consider that Musgrave comes to the Eagles from Minnesota, where quality quarterbacking wasn't an everyday occurrence. If Musgrave can help Foles get ride of the ball even faster in Chip Kelly's already-rapid offense, the Eagles will put up video game numbers--a situation welcomed by fantasy owners everywhere.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has been working on throwing the ball in cold weather. His focus is on getting grip and flicking the ball.
Huddle Up: The weather forecast calls for temps in the mid-20s Saturday night in Philly, but Foles has seemed to weather all other challenges with a 27-2 TD/interception ratio and there's no real reason to start doubting the QB now.

With 263 yards and two touchdown passes against the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles finished the regular season with 27 touchdowns and two interceptions.
Huddle Up: Foles went 19 touchdown passes before his first INT of the season, and his not turning the ball over is a big reason why the Eagles are in the postseason.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said QB Nick Foles will be his quarterback moving forward beyond 2013 and into next year if he stays healthy.
Huddle Up: Foles has played unexpectedly well, and the guys around him have benefited. Keep this in mind in keeper and dynasty leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick (hamstring) will practice in full Tuesday, Nov. 26, but head coach Chip Kelly said he will back up QB Nick Foles in Week 13. Kelly said Foles doesn't need to look over his shoulder and should have a 'desire to excel, not fear of failure.'
Huddle Up: No surprise here as Foles has scored at least 20 fantasy points in 3 straight games. This week, though, he faces his toughest test yet with the Cardinals' rugged D coming to Philly.
